A juvenile hunt is where you can take a child and an adult, give the child a gun with the adult in close proximity and let them hunt, we can do it here in AL and the juvenile does not even need a license.

Ahhhhh.... okay. We just call that hunting. LoL. You know, since there is adult supervision. I thought perhaps somewhere children were being allowed to hunt on there own. I grew up in Michigan and started hunting at 14 (shooting at 6). At that time all you needed was a certificate from a hunter safety course and a legal adult to accompany you.

So what if they do.

Someone gets a driver's license at 16 often cannot rent a car until they turn 25.

Same deal.

40 is the new 30, and 21 is the new 18.. honestly everything is probably going to go to 21 except driving at some point. When you are 18 you think it's not fair and it's such a long wait but by the time you hit 35 you realize how trivial it was to even care about waiting until 21.

When I was 19 the state of WI raised the gambling age to 21, so I could gamble at Ho-Chunk and then I suddenly couldn't. I thought it was a big deal and it seems like yesterday, but it was 15 years ago now.

Worry more about not wasting time and living your life because the time goes fast.

Here in S Cal you get to hunt some areas that otherwise are off limits to hunting. My kids are getting too big, I'll need to borrow someone elses.

In some states, the age of consent and age to marry without parental permission is under 18.

Good thing?

Good, let's hope Dick's and Walmart's decision will put pressure on gun sellers nationally and on Congress to raise the minimum age, as Dear Leader Trump has suggested. Let gun-lovers throw a hissy fit and wet their adult diapers over it.
